    On this cool dreary day, we are having spaghetti.

    Thanks so much for everyone's good thoughts and hugs. They mean more than you know! :) Thankfully, it has just been cold with the wind chill, no snow, although today and tomorrow it is supposed to be almost 60. I hope everyone there is doing well.

    Kind of clueless for dinner tonight, although it may involve chicken. Mom is coming home this afternoon, so the short-order kitchen is back in business since no one will eat the same thing.

    Happy Sunday all.

    Tonight is home made pizza using a store bought crust. Trying to clear the fridge and freezer out before time to start prepping for Thanksgiving and the leftovers.

    jdouglas- thinking about you. Stay safe and warm.

    jdouglas13 - so how much snow do you all have up there? Be safe!

    granof20 - what a great idea to use the turkey sausage in the stuffing balls. I may have to try that recipe this year!

    GRANOF20- wow, what a great recipe. Thanks for sharing!

    Jdouglas- Sending some hugs your way... hope things are going OK up there!

    Faye- great idea of using them with the peppers and onions. Nice to have a few backups in the freezer!

    I am using it in the sausage stuffing balls during the holidays

    Yum noodle Kugel! I did the grocery shopping so my sister is supposed to cook. Not holding my breath. She should have started it an hour ago.Pea soup sounds really good. It was freezing cold here today.

    RaleighFoodBlogger - that sounds like a plan! I really like the Butterball turkey sausage. I think we'll have that Monday or Tuesday with some peppers and onions.

    I just put a noodle kugel in the oven so we'll have that with tomato soup and apples on the side.

    I'm with Faye- love Split Pea soup! And tonight, I'm also with Faye... not sure. Maybe some pasta with that butterball turkey sausage from the HT sale a few weeks back and some spinach... oh, and I have Brussels sprouts that I could roast. Well, there you go :-)

    Gator Girll - soup sounds like a great idea for today! I am still thinking about dinner for tonight. It may be soup and grilled cheese sandwiches after reading your post. :-)
